Do you feel you have empathy and compassion for all living beings? What about those you can’t seem to get along with? And does your compassion extend to yourself?
The non-judgmental attitude of mindfulness practice is not to be confused with avoidance or non-caring. Rather, mindfulness encourages the cultivation of empathy, loving-kindness and compassion. One way to do this is with loving-kindness, or metta, meditation.
